What is the role of religion in Higher Education? Does it have any role at all? I will discuss a personal view of how our religious traditions still matter to our scholarship in teaching and research.

All are welcome, and there is no need to register attendance.

God and the Good: Thinking Religion and Ethics

This series of talks considers the relation between religious thinking and traditions on the one hand, and ethics on the other. While most ethical traditions have a religious background, the increasing secularization of modern society has put this connection in question. These talks will consider how far ethical issues can be illuminated by coming at them through a religious context, and vice versa, as well as the history of the interconnection.
